LEAGUE 1 Plymouth Argyle 2 Walsall 1

Plymouth Argyle’s central defenders scored with second half headers as Derek Adams’ resurgent greens made it four League One wins in a row by beating Walsall at Home Park to soar to 17th.

Niall Canavan shrugged off injury to score with a superb diving header to greet Graham Carey’s dipping 65th minute free kick.

Playmaker Carey also set up Plymouth’s first goal.

Canavan’s central defensive partner Ryan Edwards rose at the far post to head Argyle into a 54th minute lead from Carey’s pacy free kick from the left.

The Saddlers responded to Argyle’s first goal with Cameron Norman’s header from a Matt Jarvis free kick smashing off the foot of the post, and forcing Argyle to scramble the ball clear.

Unmarked striker Andy Cook headed wide from six yards as Walsall chased the game but then beat two players before hammering low past Kyle Letheren to make it 2-1 in the 82nd minute.

Josh Gordon came closest to opening the score in the first half with a close range header from Luke Leahy’s free kick, superbly saved by Letheren.

Yann Songo’o headed over from close range as Argyle began to take control of the game.
